about how the economy is still a bit dicey and jobs aren't being created fast enough. now they're thinking he just wants to put everybody to work, he's not worried about the bonds. bondholders are saying to heck with this, you're not going to protect us, economy is way too strong for bernanke to keep buying bonds, he can't keep rates down, he shouldn't even try. the owners of bonds aren't as worried about the ongoing drag of the federal government that berng kooes fretting about and talked about today. they aren't worried about higher taxes, sequester spending cuts or any lack of any serious attempt by elected officials to get hiring going. they are selling their bonds right now before things get so much better that those bonds will be worth even less! to understand how bonds work i've got to do something different because i know a lot of people can't tell the difference between a stock and a bond. so i'm going to -- i'm going to do a little fictional analysis here. imagine that the united states is a publicly traded company. and it's got this really counterintuitive stock that

the economy may not be enough to draw the sim lus in fine 13. what's that mean? in 1937, when we were coming out of the great depression, the white house and congress decided things were bouncing back strong! strong enough that it was time to start closing the deficit by raising taxes and putting less financial support into the economy t. fed agreechltd hey, come on, man, it was a first class disaster. >> the house of pain! >> it turned out to be a recession within a depression. now the president and congress have raised taxes as a part of the fiscal cliff deal. they agreed to the sequester, which was supposed to cut the defend spending. it is impacting a lot of little programs the media isn't focused on. wetion heard much about it. the fact that they're at 52-week highs, makes it seem like the sequester doesn't matter at all, who cares? government just doesn't know what it's doing. that's not the point. the point is neither the president or congress is doing anything extra substantive to get it moving beyond what it's done. we have for the interstate highway to build out over ike. we have n

to start closing the deficit by raising taxes and putting less financial support into the economy. fed agreed. hey, come on, man, it was a first class disaster. >> the house of pain! >> it turned out to be a recession within a depression. now the president and congress have raised taxes as a part of the fiscal cliff deal. they both agreed to the sequester, which was supposed to cut defense spending. it is impacting a lot of little programs the media isn't focused on. we haven't heard much about it. the fact that they're at 52-week highs, makes it seem like the sequester doesn't matter at all, who cares? government just doesn't know what it's doing. that's not the point. the point is neither the president or congress is doing anything extra, anything substantive to get it moving beyond what's done. we have no interstate highway to build out over ike. we have no wars, fortunately, like world war ii. we don't have a problem to fix bridges and tunnels. i often think the pipeline companies and google, google are doing more to help infrastructure and the government. into the breech comes ben

tag term relative because nothing really went up today. how about technology, when the economy is going south, they cut back. they don't buy, they let it lay follow. that's because they can't prove. no one can prove, listen, i get this new computer in it will make us more money. it's too ethereal. you can bring more revenue dollars down to the bottom line when you cut back on spending. you got to compete with the other guys, all of a sudden you need more hoard ware, you need more software. you got to expand t. earnings go higher. that's why so many of the other drive and semi conductors were at their 52-week highs today. it would help if business around the world would get better, too. can come in time. if you stay tuned, i will tell you which of the texts work soon. finally, there's the industrials. it is true many of these companies have done quite well. they haven't done well the way we want them to. they have cloen grown sales, they have fired, cut back, laid off to the bone. so whatever dollars have brought in flow to the bottom line, even if the dollars aren't rising very

for the stock market and the economy, they're trapped like rats. especially after today's rally. they can't afford to have this market stay higher. they're underinvested. they haven't made the money they should have! so they have to make themselves right with the napalm attack. the bears will be visible to all. their negatively will be up by the media as though it's the truth about what the fed actually said. the bears will hope that the situation will then become self-fulfilling as the tape action determines the narrative and they set the agenda. why wouldn't they? why not try to define the event? after all, who wouldn't believe the fed is causing trouble or the market is in trouble if the futures take everything down instantly. it's death defying, come in and buy. that's why at first, it will look like no stocks will have survived the onslaught tomorrow but 2:30. then a little while after, maybe by 3:15 some stocks will climb out of the b-52, but not all. some may never get out. mostly the real estate investment trust and the high yielding bond equivalents they might be buried alive. ki

weakness, and that's a weakness that will remind us that the actual economy doesn't support much higher interest rates like we had overnight, even though, ultimately, i know they will go higher. see, but this is what's been so unreal about this whole run-up in rates that's caused the stock market to get hit -- it hasn't been justified by the data. and i think monday, we will find it still isn't. thank heavens for bernanke, because if he had listened to the endless chattering hawks in the fed, i know we'd get a hideous number. all the numbers would be hideous. it's just always worth reminding, worth reminding everyone that bernanke's done amazing work, even as all i ever hear is that he's over his head or this must end badly. have you looked around at the world's other economies? we're doing better than everyone else on the globe, in part because our chief executive officers have done an excellent job in a global slowdown, but also because of exactly what bernanke's doing. this bond program has probably allowed you and other americans refi their home and companies fix their balance sheet

. they might give you a sense of how much people are spend on the homes. another driver of the economy has slowed down of late. slowed down for all but the galleries of restoration hardware. there's been a rough couple of weeks for the consumer package good names. they had been viewed as bond market equivalents. was that proctor up for real, was that j&j rally for real? we have to know. when they report on wednesday, big g. and mccormick and conagra report on thursday, we'll find out if they can actually have more than just a dead cat bounce. if the numbers are good and the stocks go up maybe they're no longer hostage to the tnx i told you to follow. but you know, if the tnx goes higher and the stocks go down, we're in the same world of hurt. why am i showing this? this is from mccormick spice, old bay spice the special ravens model. i think it's cool. it might not matter if the interest rates keep going higher though, so remember it's the bond market stupid. two companies -- two companies that delivered terrific quarters last time around, nike and accenture give us the report cards on thu
